The Astilleros Armón shipyard in Gijón has launched two new tuna vessels of almost 80 m in length, the Cape Ann and the Cape Coral, for US shipowner Tri Marine. Both vessels will be based in Pago Pago (American Samoa). Marco designed, built and installed the deck equipment and fishing machinery for this project, plus the hydraulic systems that operate it.
Both vessels have 20 freezer tanks with a total capacity of 1728 m3. These vessels boast the most advanced technology on the market for detecting schools of tuna, and will be capable of freezing a total of 250 tonnes of fish per day almost instantaneously.
After the launch ceremonies work will be completed with the vessels afloat at the fitting-out wharf. Sea trials will then take place, after which they will finally be handed over to the US shipowner. Throughout this stage of the work, Marco will work closely with Astilleros Armón to bring to bear the extensive expertise and experience in launches gained over its more than 40 years fitting out tuna vessels all over the world.
Marco continues to reinforce its position as the world's leading provider of fishing and deck equipment solutions thanks to the awarding of new projects, particularly from the Zamakona, Murueta and Armón yards in Spain and Daesun in Korea.
